We discuss the fiasco at F1 Spa, plus lots more on the Lovecars On the Grid motorsport roundup. EP22

Welcome to Episode 24 of Lovecars On the Grid, the global motorsport roundup podcast!

This week Tiff Needell and Paul Woodman discuss the F1 at Spa farce. Is a race behind a pace car actually a race???

Great to see Lando Norris setting such great qualifying pace, until a huge crash at the very controversial Eau Rouge. Does something need to happen to Eau Rouge to make things safer?

More action in a very damp qualifying which saw George Russell in the Williams stick it on an incredible P2 on the grid, punching massively above the weight of the car and team and showing his phenomenal driving talent.

The out lap of the race will be one for Sergio Perez will want to forget, sticking into the tyre wall before they even started.

What should the officials have done for the race? There was lots of advice from keyboard warriors, with suggestions of mudflaps / fenders / smaller tyres / less horsepower and our very own Vicky Piria suggested going behind safety car until it either dried, or the race had to end.

Perhaps the most crazy idiotic thing you’ll ever see is issuing a Fastest lap, behind a pace car, where clearly you’re not allowed to race! Which went to none other than Mazepin. What a complete and utter farce!

Did they do the race so they didn’t have to refund ticket holders? What are your thoughts?

There was some racing though at Spa first up in W Series which saw a huge 6 car pile up, again at Eau Rouge, in qualifying. With Emma Kimilian coming home in the race with an impressive wet weather win.

The F3 guys also got wet, two wins for Jack Doohan, but did he cheat the reverse grid system? A bad time for the Brits, and possibly the craziest overtake by Caio Collet…. Guess where? Of course, at Eau Rouge!

Tiff was at Silverstone to watch the Moto GP, which sadly ended up being a bit of a disappointment!!

BTCC as always was great, this week was at the UKs fastest circuit, Thruxton, with plenty of drama and a bit of controversy with some chicane cutting!

Brands Hatch hosted the World GTs, that saw a huge crash and a McLaren in the trees!! But in the Needell vs Chris Harris bragging rights, team Barwell Tiff beat Garage 59 Harris.

Electric buggies in Greenland were highly entertaining, even with plenty of punctures and suspension damage, caused by the extremely challenging terrain. And delighted that again Cattie Munnings was our star of the show.

Over in America, NASCAR was complete mayhem at Daytona! The last 16 places are at stake and it’s all to play for!

Next weekend F1 goes to Max’s backyard at Zandvoort, WSB, BSB and plenty of Caterham’s at Croft!
